IN BEAUVOIR'S WORK WHEREIN THE BIAS OF AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL WRITING BECOMES APPARENT, EACH THEME IS DEALT WITH ALTERNATIVELY IN THE REGISTER OF DARKNESS AND THEN IN THAT OF LIGHT WITHOUT PRESENTING THE RULE OF THIS OSCILLATION BEFOREHAND. OF COURSE, THE EVENTS SUGGEST IT, SINCE 1939 AND THE ALGERIAN WAR DETERMINE THE BREAKPOINTS BETWEEN THE TIME OF ETERNITY AND THE TIME OF HISTORY OR RATHER, THE DISCOVERY OF HISTORICITY. BUT AS WE SEE IT, THE DIALECTIC OF TIME AND OF THE TRANSCENDENT LINK DARKNESS TO LIGHT, EXISTENCE TO NOTHINGNESS. BEAUVOIR TRIES TO DETACH HERSELF FROM CONTINGENCY BY PROJECTING HERSELF TOWARD UNIQUE ENDS IN A CONSTANT EFFORT TO SURPASS HERSELF. WHEN THE NEED TO TRANSCEND ONESELF COMES UP AGAINST THE OBSTACLE, IT FALLS BACK INTO THE ANGUISH OF NOTHINGNESS BEFORE DIALECTICALLY SURGING TOWARD NEW GOALS. EXPRESSED AT THE START AS A DESIRE FOR THE ABSOLUTE, THIS DEMAND IS THEN CONVERTED INTO THE DIMENSION OF HISTORY, TAKING ROOT IN THE MOMENT, THEN FINALLY TO THAT OF RECREATED TIME: FROM THE WRITTEN PAST TO BE SAVED, PROPELLED INTO ETERNITY. EVEN AS THE FIRST PART OF OUR WORK TRACED THE THREE PHASES OF THE ITINERARY OF TRANSCENDENCE, THE SECOND PART IS RELATED TO THE ASPECTS OF ITS EXPRESSION. STUDY OF THE NARRATIVE'S TEMPORALITY CONFIRMS THE ROLE OF EVENTS AS A RUPTURE. THE ANALYSIS OF ALIENATION EFFECT TECHNIQUES IN MEMOIRS OF A DUTIFUL DAUGHTER REVEALS, BY DETAILING THE AMBIGUITY OF NARRATIVE VOICES, THE MYTHICAL DIMENSION OF AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL WRITING AND ITS CHALLENGE: SELF-CREATION. SLIPPING INTO THE MOLDE OF THE MYTH OF THE FOUR AGES OF HUMANITY, THE CHILDHOOD STORY, MICROCOSM OF THE ENTIRE WORK, USES THE MEANS OF SELF-ANALYSIS AND OF CONCEPTUAL DISCOURSE TO TELL OF THE ORIGINAL CHOICE. FINALLY, WRITING OF THE OTHER, IN ADIEUX: A FAREWELL TO SARTRE COMPLETES THE ITINERARY OF THE AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL STORY AS A MEANS FOR A PHILOSOPHICAL DEMAND FOR NECESSITY
